This listing contains some provisional information: details may change





Blue Fin is one of the best Nic 30s we have seen - an elegant yacht, built by one of the most famous yards in Britain being Camper & Nicholson to a traditionally high specification. As a cruising yacht she is designed to provide safe sailing in every respect, with a superb sailing performance at sea in all conditions.

Deck layout is efficient, with roomy and safe cockpit, self-tail winches and slab reefing.

Interior is comfortable with plenty of storage and locker accommodation and many attractive features - even the forepeak is spacious with vee-berths, making to a comfortable double with 6" mattress! - all in exceptional condition and providing comfort afloat.

Chart table is well placed and galley is well designed, with cool-box refrigeration and full size Nelson Spinflo cooker.

Blue Fin is a perfect example of the "best of Britain" yachts which emerged in the formative years of the 70s, when new designs were being developed to embody the latest trends, but reasonably conservative hull shape, so as to optimise sailing efficiency and comfortable motion at sea.

Blue Fin is an impressive yacht for a modest price - call Mike for more detail.
